Shontelle is also known for her involvement in some charity work. And especially drawn to charities which concentrate on causes affecting children and women. She has always been motivated, inspired, and driven by the beauty and strength of women. And anyone who knows her knows that children are her ultimate weakness.
She has lent her talent in raising funds for patients with Alzheimer’s in the Together for Care concert, girl’s education for She’s the First, VH1 Save the Music Foundation, and breast cancer research charities. She performed at the 2012 Healthcorps Gala at the Waldorf Astoria.
Here’s what Shontelle have to say about her involment in charities:
“My involvement with charities simply comes from my passion for people, a passion for life itself. I’m always trying in some way to help improve the quality of other people’s lives. I feel empty when I’m not doing that. I’m especially drawn to charities which concentrate on causes affecting children. (Operation Smile Jr., She’s The First, and UNICEF are just a few of the foundations I regularly support).
Other major charities and foundations I work closely with or support are Wounded Warriors, Angel Ball, Think Pink, Music Unites, Save The Music, Save The Children, United Way, AMFAR, (RED), The ONE Campaign…. Most recently I got on board with Monica Watkins, founder of Art In Motion, and GEMS (Girls Educational and Mentoring Service), which benefits the children of the Diakonos Orphanage in Carrefour, Haiti.”
